Top 5 Resources for Medicago Researchers

Medicago truncatula, or the barrel medic, is a sister species of the forage legume alfalfa (Medicago sativa). M. truncatula is used extensively as a model organism to investigate, amongst other things, interactions with beneficial soil microbes that help plants acquire nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous from the environment.

In an attempt to consolidate the resources available and to introduce these existing tools to those just starting out with research on this model legume, I’ve compiled a list of what I see as the top five resources made by and for the Medicago research community.
